California - San Luis Obispo Railroad Museum
San Luis Obispo, CA - San Luis Obispo Railroad Museum. The Railroad History of California's Central Coast

1894 Historic Museum Freighthouse History
Originally built with the San Luis Obispo Depot upon arrival of the Southern Pacific Railroad in 1894, the 32' x 150' freight house served to load and transfer goods between the SP and the local narrow gauge, Pacific Coast Railway which linked San Luis Obispo with other towns in the County, State and Nation. The freight house remains intact today and is one of the oldest railroad structures in San Luis Obispo County. The exterior has recently been completely restored by the City of San Luis Obispo. Interior museum construction has come along way. The historic 1894 freight house building is our permanent home and houses the Museum and model railroad. We continue to need your help in finishing our interior restoration effort as well as artifact display and exhibit development. Help us preserve, and educate the community about, our regional railroad history!

California - South Bay Historical Railroad Society (SBHRS)
Santa Clara, CA - The South Bay Historical Railroad Society (SBHRS) was incorporated in 1985 to preserve the local area railroad heritage while running a working museum to benefit the community. Our members are volunteers and work on the renovation and preservation of the Santa Clara Railroad Depot, the Santa Clara Tower and the two maintenance-of-way buildings.

A large and varied collection of historic railroad artifacts are on display in the Edward Peterman Museum of Railroad History located in the Depot. This now includes the Oregon-Washington Railroad & Navigation business car #184 which was loaned to us and placed on our siding on June 26, 2009.

Within the Depot are two operational HO and N scale model railroad layout displays depicting various railroad eras and operations venues. Constant work by our members on these layouts provide an ever changing panorama, giving our visitors and members a better understanding of the different aspects of model railroading.

California - The Centerville Depot
Centerville, CA - The inspiration to preserve the historic depot began with Fremont's petition to bring Amtrak service to Centerville in 1991. The petition worked. On June 4, 1993, Fremont welcomed the return of passenger trains to the Centerville station after an absence of 53 years. In December of 1993, the city of Fremont acquired ownership of the depot itself and began to plan its restoration. Of more than sixty "No. 23"-style depots constructed by Southern Pacific between 1896 and 1916, less than a dozen exist today and the Centerville depot is the only one used in rail passenger service.

Colorado - Galloping Goose Historical Society Dolores Depot
Dolores, CO - The Galloping Goose Historical Society of Dolores, Inc. was founded in 1987. The Society’s first big project (in 1991) was to build a replica of the original RGS Dolores depot. The new building is slightly northeast of the original location. It is a Victorian structure and painted in the RGS color scheme of buff yellow with brown trim. It contains the Society’s railroad museum and gift shop.

In 1997 and 1998, the Society completely restored Galloping Goose No. 5 to operating condition through the efforts of hundreds of hours of volunteer labor and thousands of dollars in donations. Goose No. 5 made its first run in almost 47 years on the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad in May 1998. Goose No. 5 is now a very popular attraction operating on the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad in June and on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad during Railfest in August.

In 1999 the Society obtained ownership of RGS coach 256 and plans to restore it for static display in front of the Dolores Town Hall as the Chamber of Commerce visitors center and perhaps eventually to restore it to operating condition.
